Commuting at Cabrini
Cabrini welcomes commuter students and offers many services and opportunities specifically designed to enhance the commuter experience at Cabrini.
Commuter Student Resources
A staff member within the Center for Student Engagement and Leadership serves as the liaison for commuter students. Resources within SEaL for commuter students consist of:
- Commuter Liaisons: One full time staff member and one undergraduate student
- Oversight of the Commuter Lounge
- Programming designed for commuter students
- Management of commuter social media platform (@CabriniCommuters)
- Commuter student locker reservations
- Cabrini Commuter Crew Advisory Board
The Commuter Lounge is located on the Lower Level of Holy Spirit Library and is a space for commuter students to spend their time studying and socializing between classes. The space is equipped with lockers, refrigerator, microwave, Keurig, TV, charging station, couches, and tables. Commuter-specific events are also hosted in the Commuter Lounge.
Commuter Student Lockers
Lockers are available in the Widener Center (upper lobby between Widener and Founder’s Hall) and the Commuter Lounge in the lower level of the Library for student use on a first-come, first-served basis. Students must register for lockers in the Center for Student Engagement and Leadership on the first floor of the Widener Center. Users are expected to provide their own locks, which must be removed by the last day of final exams in May. The University reserves the right to remove any lock when it believes that a locker is being used for an activity in violation of University policy or if personal locks have not been removed by the conclusion of the academic year. Material remaining in lockers beyond the removal date will be discarded.
Cabrini Commuter Crew Advisory Board (C3AB)
The purpose of Cabrini Commuter Crew Advisory Board (C3AB) is to advise the Center for Student Engagement and Leadership staff on matters related to the commuter student experience. The advisory board meets once per month to share experiences and assist in formulating new ideas on matters related to developing, promoting and enhancing the quality of life for Cabrini commuter students.
Interested in joining C3AB? Apply here! Contact Bridget O’Donnell, Director for Student Engagement and Leadership, for more information.
Cabrini University also has a Learning Community just for first-year commuter students! The Cabrini Cruisers Living and Learning Community is designed specifically for commuting first-year students to explore their talents and develop leadership skills.
The Cabrini Cupboard is available to any student who is having difficulty affording groceries or accessing sufficient food to eat every day and who feels that this may be affecting their performance in the classroom. Personal hygiene products are also available. Learn more here or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR COMMUTER STUDENTS UTILIZING PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
Because SEPTA does not have a bus stop near the University, commuters planning to use public transportation need to use the Norristown High-Speed train line or the Paoli-Thorndale train line. The Cabrini Shuttle travels back and forth from the Radnor stops for those train lines to bring students to and from the campus.
